Card Carnival Blog Hop!

Welcome to our Card Carnival Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Gina! Wasn't her project just wonderful? If you just happened to stumble upon this hop please start at the beginning at Sher's Blog. We will have many different cards in different shapes and styles you won't want to miss.

  I can't make shaped cards, cause I don't have a program. So I decided to try a step card, my 1st attempt. When Sher said Carnival, this design came to mind! I always try to make cards with Operation Write Home in mind & usually fancy fold cards don't work unless we add a layer or separate writing area. So I added an extra layer to the back so a Hero Mom/Dad can add a short note to their baby. This is a standard A2 card. With no glitter, as per OWH guidelines.
*If you have time, see special note below!*

Thank you for stopping by my blog, your next stop is the talented

Here is the list in case the cotton candy stand sidetracks ya!

Misty <--You are Here

*Special Note*
My 14 y/o DD, who isn't really into pink/girly, saw this card asn FREEKED as only a 14 y/o can do. She LOVED Ellie & asked if I could make her one. Though low on supplies, I made this at 5" cut. (the one on card is 2") She LOVED it! * Sigh* Be still my mama hart, I won't wash my right cheek for a week!

Big Ellie!

I love your card. Those peanut men are so cute. It really is a fun card. I have to agree with your DD that even if you are not a "pink" person there is no way you can't like that elephant card.
